SGC Breakfast Briefing on 'Doing Business Down Under: Market Entry Structures and Regulatory Requirements in Australia'

About the Breakfast Briefing:

This breakfast briefing provides a concise overview of market entry structures and regulatory requirements in Australia with respect to foreign direct investments. It is aimed at senior executives of multinational companies planning to invest into Australia through their regional headquarters in Singapore. The seminar will outline structures commonly adopted by foreign businesses when investing into Australia. In doing so, we will share our practical experience from recent transactions and offer the opportunity of a question and answer session or roundtable discussion.

Topics include:
• Market entry considerations – overview of the Australian market, its trade and economic opportunities and of different market entry structures.
• Regulatory requirements – overview of foreign investment regulations in relevant industry sectors
• Setting up and operating an Australian business – overview of the process and legal and tax implications of setting up an Australian company within a multinational group.
